The colors in this tattoo are a very nice lighter blue and orange. The shading around the bird’s wings and tail are smoothed over the waters waves, making them look connected in each of the waves curved ripple. The heavy black outlines around the body of the bird help to emphasize it, while at the same time letting the waves behind it remain dominant. The inner color of the bird helps give the fiery feel, as if it was an actual flame itself. The top of the waves are smooth just as the rest of the water below it, down to the lower swirl at the bottom right. This is a really nice tattoo that shows skill in larger detailing.
